Desperate for tourist dollars, Jim Thorpe took its name from the famous Native American athelete who died in 1953. Jim Thorpe, formerly the town of Mauch Chunk, has a great deal of history. The railroads got a lot of their start here, some of the Molly Maguires were executed here, and this town was once home to essentially the first roller coaster in the country. A rather strange history.
St Mark's Church. Adorned with Tiffany stained glass and marble floors. Funded mostly by Asa Packer, industrialist, and coal and railroad baron. I'll bet it didn't get him into heaven.
